dealing, which works ill for the art, ill for the artist, ill for the public: to come to the point, the system of agency and douceur. In no other world of selling and buying (says a contemporary) are these found satisfactory, Doth in one important feature being distinct from all business done by commission openly avowed. This feature is the secresy of the transaction, which naturally brings on an abuse of public good faith, placing it at the mercy of the artist who can bid highest for the' agent's good word,—and of the agent who, by producing ware not worth its reputation for a "consideration," inevitably renders the task of merit more delicate in its scruples, more averse to all intermediate transactions,— possibly, too, less ample in its means. "While we would fain protect the artist struggling upwards, we are bound in continuation to ask whether the artists who have arrived are themselves clear of aiding and abetting so thoroughly vicious a system? What is to be said of the performer who, having before him the world of good music where to choose, prefers to perform, on the appeal of a per-centage, or payment in full, music from which pickings and perquisites are to be gleaned? Simply, that in all proceedings of the kind they cease to be artists, and become hired agents in their own turn. It is only the mediocre or the mean among the composers who will bid for such spurious protection, by extending which the public again suffers, and the standard of taste is inevitably depreciated. Much has been said by those before the public concerning the venality of the press. Were this true to the extent complained of, have those who resort to indirect influence on the one hand, or on the other to covert payment, a right to complain? We put the case, in all its strength, before all real musicians. To them it will be known that any amount of evidence could be brought in justification of our broaching a question as important as it is delicate.

St. Martin's Hall.—The disaster at St. Martin's Hall deprives London, for a time at least, of one of its best concert halls. We are sorry to see it stated that Mr. Hullah has lost a portion of hia musical library by the fire.—Athenatum.

Cbcmbs Of News.—Mr. Gye has gone over the Alps, it is said, in search of tLo RlneV Swan, alias a real Italian pritm donna who can sing.—Herr Hiller, though cordially invited to Leipsig to fill the place vacated by Herr Rietz, as chief at the Gewandhaus Concerts, declines leaving Cologne. In this .we hold him wise. Herr Reinecke, some seven years ago known as a pianist of promise, has been appointed in his stead.—" They say" that Herr Reinthaler is composing again; we should have had something new from him long ago.—What, by the way, has become of Herr Gade? He might have melted into the empty air for any "sound himself hath made" in Europe lately.—M. Bataille is about to leave Paris for the Grand Opera at Brussels,—a real loss this to the French capital.—The Belgian capital is at last to possess an organ worth playing on, a new instrument of first class having been bespoken for the Palais Ducal, in which great musical celebrations are to be held.

THE HARP OF WALES."

Sung by Mr. SIMS BEEVES,

COMPOSED BY BRINLEY RICHARDS.

Price 2s. 6d.

"* The Harp of Wales' (sung for the fint time) U a very graceful long, admirably adapted for Mr. Sims Reeves, ami sung by the distinguished tenor with a refinement of expression which produced a magical effect on the audience, and raised demands for repetition which were not to be denied.'*— Daily Telegraph.

"' The Harp of Wales,' beautifully sung by Mr. Sims Reeves, was unanimously redemanded."— Morning Post.

** The other was new and sung for the first time by Mr. Sims Reeves. It Is called the ' Harp of Wales/ and Is a lovely and expressive melody, it was enthusiastically encored."—Daily tfcu*i.

"Mr. Richards did honour to his fatherland by Introducing a new song, * The Harp of Wales,' which is sure to become a favourite of the Oymri, who are justly proud of their bards. So admirably was this sung by Mr- Sims Reeves, that an encore was Inevitable, and the ballad was as warmly applauded the second time as the first."— Musical H'orld.

"VTKW SONttS by J. W. DAVISON, "Rough wind

-L* that mnanest loud" (sung by Mr. Santlev at the Monday Popular Concerts); ** Swifter far than Summer's flight,"" (sung by Miss Palmer at the Monday Popular Concerts): "False friend, wilt thou smile or weep," Beatrice's song In the Cenci (sung by Madame Sainton-Dolby, nt the Monday Popular Concerts, St. James's Hall); are published by Cramer, Beaie, and Co., 201 Regent Street.

The above Songs form Nos. 1, 2, and 3 of Vocal Illustrations of Shelley.

"Mr. Santley was encored in one of the thoroughly picturesque aii<1 poetical settings of Shelley, by Mr. J. W. Davison, mentioned a week or two since. His song, * Rough wind that moanest loud,' is a thoroughly good song."—Athcneeum.

'* Madame Saintnn-Dolhv's greatest efforts were called forth by Mendelssohn's • Night* song, and Mr. J. \V. Davison's * False friend, wilt thou smile or wep' (from Shelley's 'Cenci'), to both of which she did the amplest justice. The latter work is one of the most poetical and beautiful of the * Vocal Illustrations of Shelley,* composed by Mr. Davison many years ago, and which, though rarely heard, possess far more sterling merit than nine-tenths of the most admired songs of the dav. A more intellectual treatment of the words could not well be imagined. Mr. Davison has completely caught the spirit of the poetry, and heightened its beauty by tin* potent ch irms which belong only to the sister'art. 'False friend, wilt thou smile or weep,' sung to perfection by Madame Sainton-Dolby, was enthusiastically applauded."
